Gaming Computer around $350?
Is there a good gaming computer for around $350. I'm only looking for a computer tower, not a keyboard and mouse. I'm using a $200 laptop and I can't play any good games on this. I was wondering if anyone knew a good type. I will also take a high performance computer also, if there are no good gaming computers for that price.
It would help if you could quantify where you set the bar for "good", but here's a build I chose parts for that's only a little over your stated budget, that will probably at least outperform your laptop:
